For the past 3 years, we've been working on an art book and record set detailing the entire history of Dead Moon - the greatest rock band of all time. All the elements for the book are close to done.  Our goal was to make as high quality a document as we could, but also make it affordable.

We need your help to get the book printed. We looked at all the options and decided this is the best way to get the book done right AND be available for a decent  price. The wholesale price of the book is $55. After this Kickstarter campaign, the book will eventually be available retail, and will probably go for abut $80.

What is this art book and record set?

It will be a 12.5 x 12.5-inch cloth and leather bound hardcover 300ish page full color book weighing around 6.5 pounds or 3 kilograms. The covers will have die cuts embedded and will hold 2 LP's

The book will tell the entire Dead Moon saga in the words of the band itself. Just the voices of Fred, Toody and Andrew. It includes a complete illustrated discography of everything Fred, Toody and Andrew have released, and TONS of band photos, flyers, and weird ephemeral stuff. Lots of it has never been seen by the greater public.

One of the LP's is a "greatest hits" overview of Dead Moon, the other features hard to find songs that appeared on long out of print singles and Europe only releases, as well as a couple unreleased songs.  All killer, no filler.  Absolutely no floor sweepings!

We can't do this without the community, and we appreciate your support of this project.
